PS C:\> $error
Set-Acl : Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.
At line:1 char:8
+ set-acl < <<< c:\test -AclObject $acl
+ CategoryInfo : PermissionDenied: (C:\test:String) [Set-Acl], UnauthorizedAccessException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.UnauthorizedAccessException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.SetAclCommand
Is there a way to have $errror just show 'Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.' in this example?
I typically use:
Well, you could do $error.Exception.Message . If you just want to change the formatting of the ErrorRecord objects, that's a bit more involved. However, there is one easy solution that you might like: $ErrorView = 'CategoryView'
Damn you guys rock, thats perfect! Thanks all!
